Too eager to fetch?

744 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Marsh Muppet
My dog Billy always shoots off to get his stick when I throw it, despite me trying to get him to stay still until commanded to fetch. What's the best way to keep him still even after I've thrown the stick?

The usual method is to block his forward progress with your other hand out in front of his face.....basically saying Wait with that 'stop sign'.

If that doesn't deter him, hold on to his collar.

Be careful here...don't take all the fun of it and less exciting by making him do alot of work for it.
